Tracing your military relatives is a crucial part of family history. Few of our family members deserve to have their memories preserved more than those who fought to secure our freedom. The detailed records of these heroic forebears provoke feelings of awe, sorrow and pride that you won’t experience with any other documents.
We want to hear about your family’s experiences of working with horses in wartime. If your ancestors fought alongside these noble animals, enter our competition and your story could form part of the new War Horse: Fact & Fiction exhibition at the National Army Museum.
The latest attraction at the National Army Museum is an interactive exhibition bringing War Horse to life. Get a unique insight into the story with exclusive material from the author, Michael Morpurgo, the acclaimed National Theatre stage production and the Disney film.
The Museum reveals the touching real-life stories of horses in warfare – and the men who depended on them. War Horse: Fact & Fiction exhibition is running at the National Army Museum until 31 August 2012.
Our competition gives you the chance to add your family’s story to this inspiring exhibition. If you have a tale about an ancestor who fought alongside horses or mules, please email it to us at email@example.com, and include any photos or sources you can. Please note the maximum size limit for emails is 500mb.
A panel of judges will select the most remarkable story. The winner will then be able to find out more about their family history from the Museum’s curatorial team, and see their tale become part of the War Horse: Fact & Fiction exhibition.
By entering the competition you are agreeing to the terms and conditions. Competition closing date 9th March 2012.
